Welcome to Festivus we are a UK-based events promotions company providing live entertainment and Culture to thousands of consumers year on year.
GARAGE NATION FESTIVAL
Garage Nation is the world’s biggest and longest standing UK Garage brand, showcasing and staying true to its UK Garage roots since 1998. In 2015 we put on the first ever Garage Nation Festival, taking it from the clubs to the outdoors and attracting a 10,000 sold out crowd.
Garage Nation Festival is the only Festival in the world with the focus on 100% UK Garage and other arenas of its sub genres.
SOUTH EAST SOUL & REGGAE FESTIVAL
In 2018 we established South East Soul Festival, headlined by the legendary Trevor Nelson, in 2019 after a sold out 1st year we went even bigger with the headliner Shalamar and now in 2020 we’re bringing everyones favourite Soul II Soul alongside Jocelyn Brown and Aswad.
ONE DANCE FESTIVAL
Once we established Garage Nation Festival in 2015, we used the weekend that same year to launch another Festival uniting all of the UK’s core rave and dance music under one event and One Dance Festival was born. Mixing UK Garage with Grime, Dubstep, Drum & Bass, Old Skool, Jungle, House, Funky House & Classic House, the way we put the concept together was revolutionary and saw this brand new Festival sell out at 10,000 tickets 2 weeks before the day of the event.
SOUTH EAST DANCE FESTIVAL
After 2 successful years of Garage Nation and One Dance Festival, we chose to delve into Essex to put together a festival celebrating the more 90’s dance music culture of the UK, incorporating UK Garage, Club Classics, Classic House, Jungle and Old Skool. We grew this from a 1,500 year 1 capacity festival to a now 5,000 capacity sell out event, South East Dance Festival has come to be known as must attend event to experience music of this era.
Taking the amazingly positive experience of producing One Dance Festival and the was it was so well received, we saw a gap to bring this same concept more into Essex and in 2017 Sunbourne Festival was created, selling out at 5,000 tickets in less than 3 months. In 2018 and 2019 this grew to 8,000 and 10,000 per day respectively to become an established part of the UK’s Festival scene for UK dance music, bringing together the sounds of UK Garage, Jungle, Drum & Bass, Old Skool, House and Trance music.
UK GARAGE FEST
After seeing the need for an additional platform for the over spilling UK Garage talent, UK Garage Fest was created in 2014, its aim was to balance and bridge the gap between the established UK Garage talent, and up and coming less known acts that were desperate for an opportunity.
UK Garage Fest has run every year on Easter Friday since 2014 and is a staple in the UK Garage scene, it is the largest event that gives the most number of DJ opportunities to up and coming DJs with the aim of running as many arenas as possible to help facilitate this, one year we were able to create 8 Arenas for this showcasing over 110 up and coming DJ’s over 12 hours.
The event continues to sell out every year which is very encouraging to the future of the scene.
Our next project in the pipeline, currently in discussion with Redbridge Council to bring Colours Festival over the Pride month of June, bringing the love and freedom energy of the month to a festival for the masses.
”After 3 brilliant years of working with Festivus Group on music festivals, we are very excited to look at the Colours Festival concept celebrating the LGBTQ+ community and having an event that focuses on that sense of freedom and love for 2021 in Redbridge”
